This photo is for Andy H in Nova Scotia to show what is happening to the last few secondaries on our 1911 (North) Chan plant. With a hungry 26 day old pumpkin on the main vine, this plant is shutting itself down. Yes, a mild dose of Calcium Nitrate might be in order and Iíll likely throw some in with the next feeding along with the usual dose of Ureamate.

Once a plant either shuts down on its own, or youíve terminated all secondaries, the likelihood of addition second or third stage growth is unlikely. Ive never had tertiary vines pop up on me, but Iím also fastidious about nipping tertiary vines and unneeded flowers once Iíve got fruit set.
